can community. >> but john, the frustrations that business have with obama care is driving them nuts this is one of the aspects of obama care and the tax inplications that businesses have to dole with. i have gone through these things it is minuet. you need a stack of accountants to understand this stuff. >> ceo's work for shareholders. i think in this case speaking out against obama care which is a substantial costs that weigh on profits is something they should do. it is proprofit to talk about a law to let the nation know and lawmakers know what will cut in profits and so in this case, i think they should speak out. i question whether lower sales are relate to obama care. >> that's what they are saying. the hit they took from the press about critizing obama care led to people not frequenting their restaurants. john and i could mike a point of buying humus from whole food because we support the libitarian views of the chairman. but there is it the guy who applied the pizza topping voted republican once. let's boycott it it cuts both ways. >> by the way morgan, it is not only olive
you to cairo for the latest on that. >>> and president obama and house speaker john boehner are talking again. but that is about the only thing close to progress in efforts to avoid the fiscal cliff. president obama used his weekly address insisting he is ready to make the tough decisions on spending cuts. >> i am willing to make more entitlement spending cuts on top of the one trillion in spending cuts i signed into law last year. but if we're serious about reducing our deficit while still investing in things like education and research that are important to growing our economy, and if we're serious about protecting middle class families then we're also going to have to ask the wealthiest americans to pay higher tax rates. that is one principle i wouldn't compromise on. >> speaker john boehner has a different view. he says the president needs to abandon what he called his "my way or the highway approach," in his words. if the president does that a lot of things are possible. >>> syrian rebels are battling army units around the capital. activists say 26 people were killed in
marijuana. and that could create very tricky political balancing act for president obama himself. john avlon is "outfront" on this story right now. this is a tightrope for the president, john. >> it is. it's fascinating. a brand new quinnipiac poll illustrates what a tough situation this is. for the first time, a narrow majority of americans, 51%, support legalizing marijuana. but here's where it gets politically interesting. when you break it down by party i.d., 58% of democrats and independents support legalizing marijuana. clear majority. only 31% of republicans do, however. so it's a fascinating shift where liberals and independents are saying, look. states rights at least on this issue. more individual liberty. and republicans are being more traditionalist about their attitudes. final point, this poll makes very clear it's a generational shift. just a second ago you were talking about the evolution of this issue of same-sex marriage. same thing with marijuana legalization. clear majorities of americans under age 44 supporting legalization. only 35%, however, of senior citizens supportin

parties are leaving the talks to president obama and house speaker john boehner. here on capital hill, boehner says he is still waiting for the white house to respond to the latest gop proposal. >> this isn't a progress report because there's no progress to report. >> republicans are offering to extend tax breaks for all americans, close tax loopholes and cut nearly $1.5 trillion in spending. >> i came out the day after the election to put revenues on the table to take a step toward the president to try to resolve this. when is he going to take a step toward us. >> jay david cox sees real conqueenses if the country goes over the cliff. >> -- consequences if the country goes over the cliff. >> there would be a lot of employees who would be furloughed or lose their job. >> speaker boehner says he will be staying in town this weekend ready to negotiate with the president. danielle nottingham, cbs news washington. >>> a car can't be registered at the dmv. turning buyers and sellers into big losers. >>> when it comes to early december weather, does it get any better than this? if you're a
and in particular if you look at the red lines that are being proposed by john boehner and president obama, if you look at these very closely, a deal is beginning to take shape. watch this. you remember during the presidential campaign what president obama used to say over and over again about tax rates? about what his plan was for tax rates? president obama was crystal clear about what e he wanted. >> i have said that for incomes over $250,000 a year that we should go. back to the rates that we had when bill clinton was president. >> i want to reform the tax codes so that it's fair. the same rate we had when bill clinton was president. >> we have to ask you and me and the wealthiest among us to go back to the clinton rates for income above $250,000. >> the clinton tax rates, we need to go back. that's not a generic policy idea. that's really specific. the clinton tax rate for high income earners was 39.6%. that's what president obama was calling for during the campaign. that's still what president obama is calling for now. but now when you ask him if that's the red line, if it you ask if he will
